INTEGRITY “Suicide Black Snake” CD’s available on tour Monday in Richmond

May 25 2013

UPS Overnight Saturday costs a fortune… thanks Memorial Day!

The good news is that INTEGRITY will have copies of Suicide Black Snake (the band’s 10th full length) starting on the Richmond, VA date of their tour Monday (and throughout all summer appearances).

Packaging is rather deluxe on this one, as we sprung for a 6p digipak with matte flood, spot high gloss UV, a 16 page lyric and art booklet, and full color disc face, all passionately assembled by Dwid Hellion.

The street date for the CD and LP is June 11. Look for everything in stores worldwide, with a digital release date of June 4 for those that can’t wait for physical copies. Thank you!

May 14 2013

Now in the webstore : CHRISTIE FRONT DRIVE First LP.

First issued twenty years ago, this is the debut LP from the short-lived and highly influential Denver band. We kept the mix the same, but remastered the entire thing so that it’s no longer victim to the compression issues of that era of recorded music.

01. Turn
02. Dyed on 8
03. Long Out
04. Lot
05. Pipe
06. Dirt

For the vinyl, we went with three different variations for the first pressing:


The cover layout remains the same (we didn’t even adjust the leading issues with the type) to stay consistent with the original feel of the LP.

The CD version of this album comes in a sharp-looking digipak that is intended to perfectly complement the S/T/”Stereo” CD/DVD we reissued prior.

Copies of the LP and CD are now available in the webstore.

Digital version is available now on iTunes.

INTEGRITY unveil new album track via Pitchfork

May 08 2013

From Earsplit PR:

As the villainous INTEGRITY prepares to release the band’s tenth LP, Suicide Black Snake, another new track has uncoiled today via Pitchfork.

While the band’s vast catalog of albums, EPs and 7” releases have continually shown new sides to the act’s sound, the intense Suicide Black Snake shows some of the most extreme musical progressions in INTEGRITY’s intense lineage. While the band’s characteristic mournfully harmonized guitar style huge metal solos are apparent, the album’s seventh and longest track “There Ain’t No Living In Life” boasts classic blues-ridden and even Southern American rock elements which infiltrate the endtime INTEGRITY message in a unique style of apocalyptic sorrow, fusing undistorted guitars, somber spoken word passages and even harmonica into a crushing and epic culmination.

Suicide Black Snake sees worldwide release June 11th, the vinyl pressing via A389 Recordings and the CD with Magic Bullet Records. INTEGRITYwill embark on an extensive tour leading up to and through the album’s release, starting with a one-off in New Haven, Connecticut May 23rd alongside Overcast. The next two days will take the band’s wrath to our northern allies to the first time ever as the A389 Canadian Invasion slams Montreal and Toronto with support from Homewrecker and Ilsa. Directly following the Canadian Invasion INTEGRITY will take part in the annual Maryland Deathfest in Baltimore, followed by a brutal tour through the Southeast states with Gehenna and Full Of Hell as the three acts trek to Chaos In Tejas 2013. A massive European festival assault will consume the end of July and much of August including multiple festival performances.

HIGHNESS “Gaea (Strings)” song premiere, courtesy of Revolver Magazine

Apr 11 2013

Late last week, Revolver Magazine premiered “Gaea (Strings),” the first song from the upcoming HIGHNESS debut album Hold, along with a short feature on the band. To read the piece, you can check it out on the Revolver Magazine site.

RVA Magazine (out of the band’s partial hometown of Richmond, Virginia) also ran a recent feature on the band, which you can check out on the RVA Magazine site.

Hold will be in stores everywhere on May 14, 2013, along with a reissue of the first LP from singer Eric Richter’s former band CHRISTIE FRONT DRIVE. We anticipate it being a rather exciting day for fans of his work.
